The Surprising Three-Part Base Nutrient System Veteran Growers Swear By

Many growers swear by their old-school formulations. And it’s like they say…

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

But did you know that not every three-part base nutrient system is created equal? That’s right. Even if they’ve got the same obvious benefits — familiarity, flexibility, feeding program control — the subtle differences from brand to brand can add up to a massive variance in the quality of your crop.

That’s why we sell Jungle Juice

And why the demand for this base nutrient system never waivers.

Now, there are three questions growers ask us all the time before they make the switch:

  • What makes Jungle Juice different from other three-part base nutrient systems?
  • Should I use Jungle Juice or one of Advanced Nutrients’ pH Perfect® lines for my grow?
  • What’s the exact application of Jungle Juice?

We’re explaining it all right here…

So if you’re wondering whether Advanced Nutrients Jungle Juice is the right choice for your cannabis plants, then pay close attention to what comes next.

How Is Jungle Juice Different Than Your Traditional Three-Part Base Nutrient System?

No doubt, Jungle Juice bears some similarities to conventional three-part base nutrient systems you’ve seen on the hydro store shelves for years.

And that’s great news for growers who are most comfortable with old-school hydroponic nutrient solutions.

Composed of Grow, Micro, and Bloom components, Advanced Nutrients’ Jungle Juice features both NPK and the micronutrients cannabis plants need to thrive.

So can this base nutrient system actually raise your cannabis cultivation game?

The answer is yes — and here’s why:

In reality, most three-part base nutrient systems have been on the market since the late 1970’s.

That means they’ve remained virtually unchanged — for DECADES.

And while we recognize that many growers aren’t looking to reinvent the wheel, we knew we could provide a superior three-part base nutrient system

One that combines the best of those conventional formulations with modern-day advancement your cannabis plants will love.

So with Jungle Juice, you’ll still enjoy the same perks you’re used to, including the ability to follow familiar recipes and dial in your own nutrient ratios.

However, you’re also getting…

  • Increased quality control
  • Higher quality elements
  • A better range of chelation

And when you combine those three benefits, you’re setting yourself up for success…

Without having to change your feeding program or dial in a new set of products.

By the way, Jungle Juice is just as cost-effective as alternative solutions, meaning you save money by purchasing a superior product.

Now that you understand the difference, let’s take a look at the second question we’re often asked…

Which Hydroponics Nutrients Are Right For Me — Jungle Juice or the pH Perfect® Products?

Many newcomers to the Advanced Nutrients line ask us this question when trying to decide between our different base nutrient systems.

And chances are, if the question even crosses your mind, then the pH Perfect® line is a better fit for your cannabis plants.

To put it simply, our pH Perfect® base nutrient system is a more modern and comprehensive nutrient, and many of our top growers rely on them to achieve award-winning cannabis cultivation.


If you love old-school formulations and want to stick with what you know, Jungle Juice is a fantastic upgrade that your plants will undoubtedly love.

Here are three scenarios that make you the perfect fit for Advanced Nutrients’ Jungle Juice:

  • You’re switching over from another old-school line. In fact, you can even mix and match bottles if you’ve still got some of your old base left, so you never have to worry about throwing away unused products.
  • You’ve got your own customized recipes that involve multiple products with varying levels of compatibility.
  • Your schedules are geared towards super-tight economies of scale.

No matter which base nutrient you choose, it’s also important to understand best practices for maximizing yields. This way, your nutrients can support the technique you’ve put in place for optimal success.

Alright, now that we’ve covered who will benefit most from Jungle Juice, let’s get to the final question most growers have about this product.

What’s the application of Advanced Nutrients’ Jungle Juice?

A proper feeding schedule plays a huge part in the success of your cannabis cultivation.

And as you can probably tell by now, one of the biggest benefits of Jungle Juice is that it allows for a ton of versatility.

And you can still use many of the customized recipes that have been circling around the industry for ages.

For example, if you’ve always used the Lucas Formula — a recipe that originated on the online forums in the late 1990s and early 2000s — Jungle Juice can accommodate your current routine perfectly.

And in case you’re searching for a new recipe, the back of the Jungle Juice bottle features a traditional 3-2-1 1-2-3 application you can use. Once you’ve gotten familiar with that, the sky’s the limit when it comes to dialing in the perfect nutrient ratios for your cannabis plants.

The Bottom Line…

If you’re familiar with conventional formulations, but still want to introduce modern advancements into your grow, then Advanced Nutrients’ Jungle Juice is the ideal three-part base nutrient system for your grow.

And when you put it to work for you in your garden today, you’ll benefit from strict quality control measures, superior inputs, and a better range of chelation.

Over time, components within the nutrients settle on the bottom of the bottle. When you pour a bottle without shaking it, you can potentially be pouring out an unbalanced solution. Shaking up the nutrient bottle ensures you are pouring the right blend into your reservoir, giving your crops the nutrition they need.

Usually, it’s not a problem. But some products are incompatible with each other and can damage your plants when they’re used together. For example, bloom boosters with high PK numbers or low-grade silica products can destabilize your nutrient mix and cause nutrient lockout.

Nutrient manufacturers design their products to be used with each other. In doing so, they include specific portions of each nutrient in each product, so crops receive the right nutrition through each stage of the grow cycle. When you stick with one manufacturer, you don’t have to worry about inadvertently destabilizing your nutrient mixture. One example of why you need to stick with only one manufacturer’s products is Advanced Nutrients’ pH Perfect line. These products are designed to keep your crops’ root zone within a specific pH range. When you use them alongside products from another manufacturer, we can’t guarantee your root zone will maintain its optimal pH level.
